Tagline: Taking out the trash, one jerk at a time.

Plot: On a mission to rid society of its most repellent citizens, terminally ill Frank makes an unlikely accomplice in 16-year-old Roxy.

My rating: 8/10

Will I watch it again?  Yes.

Fuuuunnnnny!  I'm diggin' what Bobcat Goldthwait is doing with his pictures in the past few years.  The guys making movies I want to see.  This dark comedy has some of those odd moments that make movies delicious.  He's visualizing what a lot of us are thinking about.  Just shoot the mother fuckers that annoy you and live your life.  Enjoy yourself.  Have a Coke and a smile.  It's well paced and the jokes are plenty.  I don't recall seeing him before but Joel Murray (younger brother of Bill) is fucking hilarious.  He nails it.  It's an outrageous movie with a crazy silly premise but it works well.  I'm looking forward to seeing this again.
